The African Cup of Nations (AFCON) Group C kicks off with a clash between the sides considered likeliest to progress. The second-highest ranked African side by FIFA, one-time winners Morocco are amongst the genuine contenders for glory, after a run of no competitive defeats within 90 minutes since a 1-0 loss to Portugal at the 2018 FIFA World Cup (W25, D9 since).

That success has been built on the Atlas Lions’ formidable backline, with Morocco keeping 17 clean sheets from 21 matches since the beginning of 2021 (an 81% shutout rate).
On that note, H2H history tends to favour strong defences, with both teams finding the net in just two of Morocco’s 11 all-time clashes against Ghana (W4, D3, L3).
Morocco tends to lead in their H2H stats with 4 wins as againnst Ghana’s 2 wins in their last 11 meetings.
The ‘Black Stars’ were in high spirits with four unbeaten qualifiers ahead of this tournament, until a 3-0 humbling by AFCON champions Algeria in their warm-up friendly. A repeat of that scoreline here seems unlikely though, with each of Ghana’s last six competitive games on foreign soil producing under 2.5 total goals (W2, D2, L2).
However, Ghana lament a recent history of false starts, after failing to win their opening group game in three of the last four AFCON tournaments.

Our Morocco vs. Ghana betting tips
Morocco head into the tournament as one of the formidable sides and favourites to go all the way, despite their Arab Cup defeat against Algeria last time out. While we expect the Black Stars of Ghana to put up a fight, we are tipping the Atlas Lions to come away with all three points to announce themselves in this competition.
Secondly, this game is bound to start slowly and cautiously from both sides, which will reserve most of the excitement to the second half.
